Las Vegas - After attempts to find the driver of a car that ran down an elderly man at a service station have been unsuccessful, Las Vegas police have released a security camera video of the incident.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department released the video on Thursday and are seeking the public's help in finding the driver who ran over an elderly man at the gas station. The driver is wanted on a charge of attempted murder.
According to Las Vegas police [PDF], the incident occurred around 11:38 a.m. on Feb. 6. The elderly victim had pulled into the gas station lot when a grey Honda Accord pulled in front of him, forcing him to swerve around the Honda.
After the victim finished at the pumps, he began walking to the store. The Accord started at him at a high rate of speed and stopped just short of the victim. The car then proceeded to hit and then run over the man. He can be seen on the video writhing in pain on the ground while the Accord keeps on going and leaves the station. Others at the gas station then come over to assist him.
Gas station employee Sheyla Rodriguez said, "I heard someone screaming. When I turned around the only thing I could see is California plates and a silver car running away. There were a lot of people outside. He didn't try to stop, nothing, he didn't care."
Rodriguez also said, "The guy was on the floor for 10 minutes, screaming. We tried to help him as much as we can."
The victim sustained serious injuries to his legs and was taken to UMC Trauma Center.
The vehicle is described as a 2010 or 2011 dark grey Honda Accord with its rear window tinted. The California plates begin with "6C." Only a vague description of the driver has been able to be ascertained; a white male in his 30s with a medium build. At the time of the incident he was wearing a grey hoodie.
Las Vegas police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
